Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Under the severe background that the global climate is facing multiple crises, the low-carbon economy model of low energy consumption and low emissions emerged at a historic moment and gradually became the development direction of the world economy. At present, a low-carbon economy has always been a hot topic for scholars globally. They mainly study the following three aspects: policies, technological innovations, and industrial upgrades. Moreover, great achievements have been made. The overall scale of the low-carbon economy continues to expand, low-carbon industries continue to upgrade, and low-carbon technologies continue to be developed and applied. However, there are still energy shortages, environmental pollution, ecological damage, and other problems. The development of a low-carbon economy requires both vigorous development of low-carbon technologies to achieve the goal of energy conservation and emission reduction and industrial upgrading to vigorously develop low-carbon industries and new energy industries. In recent years, with the development of a low-carbon economy, a series of new concepts and terms such as “carbon locking”, “carbon footprint”, “carbon neutrality”, “carbon source”, “carbon sink”, and “carbon trading” have been accompanied by the emergence of new concepts and terms. In recent years, countries around the world have stepped up efforts to develop a low-carbon economy. From the perspective of the practice of developing a low-carbon economy, the development path and strategy of a low-carbon economy are put forward mainly by the fields of low-carbon industry, new energy, low-carbon policy tools, the low-carbon finance and money market, low-carbon technology innovation, low-carbon consumption, and low-carbon life.

This Special Issues mainly discusses the impact of green low-carbon transition on high-quality sustainable economic development from the aspects of industrial structure, employment, energy efficiency, carbon emissions, and sustainability.

Topics of interest for publication include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Industrial structure optimization;
  • Agricultural green and low-carbon development;
  • Low carbon development path;
  • Green finance, green finance policy;
  • Regional low-carbon economic transition;
  • New energy industry;
  • Energy blockchain;
  • Shared energy storage.
